    Party!

    I’m turning 60 Wednesday 9/19 and I’m going to be cooking, eating and visiting all day... and you’re invited. Noonish till dark and beyond. We’ll have the chicken on the smoker and may be some Alaska fish on the grill. Come by if you can.

    What's Cooking?

    Yeah, they were in the local news a couple years ago. Cute story. Then they faded into obscurity because it turns out almost nobody wants to eat pig noses. Kinda like bung holes @Mitch fposted about a while back. I really don’t have the stomach for the weird stuff. More power to ya if you do. Just not for me. Gimme something in that sweet spot about half way between the nose and the butt hole!

    What's Cooking?

    Yeah, but I skip the pipes. And organs. Gimme muscle. That’s just ness, to each his own. But, I don’t want poop anywhere near my pie hole. Call me crazy.

    Osage River Magic

    This isn't really only smallmouth fishing but I couldn't find a topic page for the Osage River so here it is. I went out on the Osage yesterday with my girlfriend and our kitten. I had been out on the river a handful of times this summer and had some successful trips but never one like I had yesterday. Earlier this summer I caught my PB Ozark smallmouth at 4.17 from the Osage, my PB spot at 3.63, and my PB meanmouth at 3.05. I never thought it would turn out another PB, but I was throwin' the ol' buzzer around yesterday evening and thought I had snagged a carp when I got bit. Turns out it was a 7.76 Largemouth which broke my old PB that was from a private pond by half a pound. I've included some pics of all of these fish and some other nice fish catches as well. I am very excited to see how this amazing place fishes in the winter. Lastly, I'm the president of the Mizzou Bass Fishing team so I appreciate all of the local support. Thanks guys, Tight Lines.

    Painting jerkbaits for big trout

    Low pressure stippling, stencils, and shading were fun techniques to learn on this one. Will be fished this week.

    If I wanted to I'd offer to be one. Guarantee within 3 episodes I could totally steal the show. 😊 I'd have love & hate groups bigger than Ike.

    Would you pay them for that kind of opportunity? My lawn s pretty big and i should charge more , but I guess I'd let some one do it if they paid me $50. 😀

    If retired it could be a sweet gig, not a gig for a working man though. They should pay for the truck, pay you, house, feed, and water you well if you are expected to drive a Miss Daisy and keep score.

    I talked with MLF earlier this year about becoming a boat official with them. It was my understanding at the time that I was just barely close enough to qualify by location for the position. You had to be within 3 hours of Tulsa. You also had to have a truck capable of pulling one of their boats to whatever location and you had to have room in the truck for the camera guy and the angler to go to the launch every day. I'm on the potential list for them going forward, but my work schedule makes it difficult to go for 3-4 weeks a year. Pay has not been discussed yet, but I plan on reaching out to them once this dust settles and pursue it further. I'd consider another line of work if I could supplement my income this way.

    Alot of formats would be interesting for spectators. Mix it up and do several ! One where the earliest limit scored is 1st place, the second is 2nd place, and so on. Have a big fish division where the biggest fish of the day takes 1st. A race to 120 inches would be a hoot (rounded back to the nearest 1/2"). The possibilities are almost endless and the format switch throughout the year would hold more people's interest over the longest period of time I think. AOY would be the guy who finished best though all the divisions.

    Whites, Hybrids and Stripers?

    Here's another thing:. Does anyone ever catch Whites/Hybrids near a dock? Because I don't. I even had a really good point with a drop-off that was one of my best areas....until somebody bought the property, built a house and slapped a dock on it. Ever since that dock got placed there I haven't had a good visit to that point. They seem to hate docks and low bridges and definitely want to see the sky at all times. Can anyone dispute that? Who can I call to request a missle attack on this dock right here? 😉

    I'm just hearing too much about what people want, and too little about what's best for the fish....and the areas of the lakes. Regardless of whether all caught fish are scored, or only the 3-5-10 keepers are scored, there's no need to haul fish away from the area they were caught from. Nobody longs to see bags full of keeper bass, we all know what a bass looks like. The potential thrill of seeing that is not worth the relocation of millions of fish.

    I've always thought that every fish should count, first three or five or fifty fish caught weighed or measured and done. Go for average or for total but no culling. Culling fish is like saying all the missed shots in a basketball game are practice shots and giving the shooter a free throw for every miss.

    Osage River Magic

    The Osage has really come alive this year. I've heard of several 4+ pound spots and a lot of 5+ largemouth being caught this year. The biggest surprise to me though is the number of nice smallies being caught! Every once in a while somebody would catch a decent one on the Osage, but there have been several 3+ and even 4+ smallies weighed in during tournaments this year. I boated my PB Osage bass last month in a tournament out of St Thomas that weighed 5.43. Caught it on the spinning rod and by sheer luck managed to land it even though it had me so tangled up in a brush pile that we had to snag the line and pull the fish in by hand! Had a couple other big largemouth show themselves that day, but didn't land them The fishing gets better and better the closer you get to Bagnell. Start at Tuscumbia and work your way up. St. Elizabeth area can be decent too, but Tuscumbia on up is definitely my favorite part of the river. Here is a video of our last tournament out of St Thomas. The big one is towards the end.

    My boat is an all aluminum 10 footer with a bps 30 lb. trust trolling motor. It was made in the late fifties early 60s and was given to me by my father when I was 10. Top speed 5.3 mph.
